According to Metro, Sami Khedira has agreed to join Arsenal this January – and NOT Chelsea as originally thought.
Real Madrid are keen to offload the German World Cup winner come the winter after realising that he will not sign a new deal with the club and Los Blancos do not want to lose him for free in the summer.
As our regulars point out, Khedira would have cost significantly more had Arsene Wenger landed him in the summer just gone but now with Real Madrid basically held to ransom after the midfielder refused to pen a new contract, the Gunners can get him for a cut price fee.
As our landlord notes, you never quite know when it comes to Arsene Wenger and we think that the Gunners could still miss out on Khedira – especially if Jose Mourinho gets involved once again!
Arsenal fans. Do you think Wenger will manage to fight off interest from Mourinho and Chelsea for the midfielder or will you miss out on a top target once again? Let us know your thoughts below.
